Debate watchers are saying Ron DeSantis did the best in Wednesday’s primary debate, according to a new poll from FiveThirtyEight.

According to that site’s data, 33% of likely Republican voters say the Florida governor won the debate. He’s followed by Nikki Haley with 18%.

As for who did the worst, viewers generally agreed Chris Christie and Mike Pence gave the weakest performances of the night. Those results are generally in line with the reaction of CNN’s Iowa focus group following the debate.
